Hillary Clinton: There Is Nothing Elitist About Fighting For Womens Rights

NEW YORK ― Hillary Clinton continued her informal speaking tour on Wednesday night, criticizing the Trump administration and hitting back at the idea that women’s issues are only relevant to progressives on the coasts.

“For a lot of women, it stung to realize that perhaps our country hadn’t come as far as we hoped; that not only are sexism, racism, misogyny, homophobia, xenophobia still with us, but they run deep,” Clinton said. “And a lot of troubling ideas have been elevated in the weeks and months that followed, including the ridiculous, insulting notion that we only care about women’s rights in certain parts of our country ― not in what some in the press call ‘real America.’”

Clinton pushed back on the idea of a stark divide between that “real America” and the cities that house what the right likes to call “liberal elites,” pointing out that millions of men and women participated in the Women’s March across the country, even outside of urban centers like New York, D.C., Chicago and L.A.

“People care about equal pay everywhere; child care and health care, everywhere; reproductive health care, everywhere,” Clinton said, urging people to continue “reaching out” and working to bring people who share those basic values across the nation together.

She still speaks for me, and for women throughout the country. I'm so glad she's still fighting for all of us.

1. But but but...

Working class white men. Economic anxiety.





Sincerely,


A very proud "Liberal Costal Elitist." Which is code for "Jew"

2. Ha! And now WOMEN are also supposed to be "Elitist"

I guess that goes along with being paid 77 cents on the dollar.

3. Anyone who doesn't support 100% of Berine's beliefs is an elitist now don't you know.

Not a real progressive.

Multimillion dollar book deals notwithstanding.
